On the second day of linking to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder" until Snyder's dumbass lawsuit gets thrown out of court, this website brings to you the first of many excerpts from said story.
Hurricane Katrina: Storm that Snyder used as an excuse to get out of the 75-year lease Six Flags had with the city of New Orleans. Snyder took over the company shortly after the storm inundated much of the city; he immediately let it be known he wouldn't be coming back. "If any company is trying to figure out an exit strategy, they are," New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said of Snyder's abandonment. Six Flags never reopened. Snyder rented the park to the Department of Homeland Security. Last year, the city fined Six Flags $3 million for breaking the lease and took over the property.
